upload speed usually depends on your ISP. There often is descrepencies between what a company promises as an upload speed and what happens in real life. I seem to remember my ISP (Cox San Diego, Cable Modem) promises from their website "Up to 4 Mb downstream / 384 Kbps upstream speed" where in reality I have seen at a max 38 Kbps, and more frequently in the 33 Kbps range.

It won't take forever and a day, it will only take a day at most, just set it to start uploading before going to bed, and by dinner the next day it will for sure be uploaded. Plus just think... when it is uploaded and public, the speeds people will get in download will be amazingly fast (200-300Kbps) and will be available for the public for free for decades to come.

Hope your upload speeds pick up! talk to your ISP. they may just give you the runaround of the fine print "actual speeds may vary" bull shit.

Thanks for contributing to the archive!

I max out at 38 up on comcast cable.

Seems to be the cap they all set.
